NEWPORT, R.I. - Dr. Joan Johnson-Freese from the U.S. Naval War College's National Security Affairs Department appeared as a guest on C-SPAN's Washington Journal on Sept. 3.
She talked about the history and current state of war colleges and professional military education (PME) and their evolving role within the changing nature of the military. She also responded to telephone calls and questions submitted to the program.

The Washington Journal is C-SPAN's flagship viewer three-hour live call-in program, airing 365 days a year. The show's focus is on the guests and the callers in a town hall format.

Dr. Johnson-Freese wrote recently on the issue of PME in a United States Naval Institute Blog Guest Post
 - A Comment on “Does Keeping PME Relevant Mean Fixing Faculty First?”  In July, she published an article entitled "Teach Tough, Think Tough: Three Ways to Fix War Colleges" on Aol Defense.

Dr. Johnson-Freese has been a member of the faculty of the Naval War College since 2002. Previously, she was on the faculty at the Asia Pacific Center for Security Studies in Honolulu, HI; the Air War College in Montgomery, AL; and Director of the Center for Space Policy & Law at the University of Central Florida.

Her recent books include Heavenly Ambitions: America’s Quest to Dominate Space and Space as a Strategic Asset.
